ActionScript 3, which is very similar to JavaScript, afaik they’re both based on the ECMAScript spec. If you do decide to code in Flash then check out Flash Builder, it’s a lot better for coding. As amethyst says, coders don’t like Flash. By the way, the Flash dev tool is now referred to as Flash Pro. I’m writing a game using Flash Builder, using animation being built in Flash Pro. Development, debugging and profiling support is way better in Flash Builder than Flash Pro.

There are open source dev tools too. FlashDevelop was popular a while back but I haven’t been keeping up. It’s also possible to write in other languages and compile them to run on the Flash VM, Google Haxe for more info.
